Atlantic Yards B2 / April 10, 2014

Architects: SHoP Architects; Program: Residential; Location: New York, NY; Completion: 2014.

Modular units have now reached the fifth floor of SHoP Architects' first tower of the Atlantic Yards project.  The pace appears to be about a floor every two weeks which would mean there are 13.5 remaining months in this 32 story tower.  I suspect the pace will quicken as experience with installation grows.  With the fifth floor you can start to read a color shift in the window unit frames from white to black on the southwest corner volume.  According to the project renderings, the next floor will introduce a lighter toned third wall type to the tower on the northeastern side.
